Took up skiing right after Christmas this year. Riding on 6 year old Volkl twin tips that are a bit too short with boots 2 sizes to big. Skis are beat to hell but they were free.
Spent my first few times out just getting the feel for riding, carving, stopping, etc. My brother is a snowboarder who spends a lot of time in the park so I've been trying the park thing as well. Due to conditions I think yesterday was out last day out around here, but so far I can:
90 on and off boxes.
90 off and land switch
Been hitting jumps and trying to get the feel for being in the air
Tried my hand at a few rails and fell, but I'm getting there.
Other than that, just your basic noob bullshit. I'm not an asshole gaper, I know my place. lol
Next year I hope to progress a lot more as I'll be on new skis, be in better shape, and have an idea of what I'm doing.
I'm 23 by the way, its never too late to start something new.
